This video shares evidence from the learning sciences and a practitioner perspective about the benefits of mixed-ability student groups

Overview

Students benefit from working on a skill or learning target in small groups with others who are at different ability levels in that skill, likely through developing a growth mindset around the target skill and through gaining a better understanding of their own strengths.

This video installment of IgnitED Research investigates the power of grouping students who are at different levels on an academic skill.
